Christian dating and physical intimacy
It is the goal of this essay to explore the ethical limitations of emotional intimacy between Christians.
For this to be done, we must, of course, understand what emotional intimacy is – this calls for us to forge a definition of emotional intimacy.
Thus, emotional intimacy is ethically acceptable until it is perverted.
We shall, of course, explore a number of these perversions.
If you are dating someone who doesn’t have a personal relationship with Christ, you are playing with fire. Don’t let the relationship progress to a physical point and then hope you can cut it off later. You need all the help you can get in today’s world. Do you depend on Him to meet your needs of love and security?
If you can’t stand the person but have a great physical relationship, rethink the relationship. If one person is uncomfortable with any type of physical expression, don’t do it. Don’t push a date to do anything that makes him/her feel uncomfortable.
" Answer: Ephesians 5:3 tells us, “But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity...because these are improper for God's holy people.” Anything that even “hints” of sexual immorality is inappropriate for a Christian.The Bible does not give us a list of what qualifies as a “hint” or tell us what physical activities are approved for a couple to engage in before marriage.
